Big screen adaptations of beloved video games have certainly been a mixed bag over the years, and now another property is chancing its hand on the silver screen.
Deadline is reporting that Square Enix’s Just Cause is getting ever-closer to a cinematic adaptation, and the outlet goes on to report that one huge movement forward in all of this is that Jason Momoa has signed on to star in what’s hoped to be a longstanding movie franchise. Momoa, of course, is the DCEU’s Aquaman right now, and is also well known to genre fans for the likes of Game of Thrones, Conan and Stargate Atlantis.
Additionally, San Andreas’ Brad Peyton – who has previously worked with Momoa on Frontier – has been brought in to direct from a screenplay put in place by Master and Commander’s John Collee.
The Just Cause video game centres on Rico Rodriguez, an operative for an organisation known as simply as the Agency. No major details are known on the film itself right now, just that it will likely deal in some way with Rico’s morals and conscience while carrying out the often brutal missions that he undertakes.
